Jingle All the Way Quilt - Friday Finish!

I have another "flimsy" finish to share with you this week. A "flimsy" is a quilt top that hasn't been quilted yet. I'm calling this one "Jingle All the Way."

Why yes, that is my Christmas tree. But the real question is did I leave it up all this time just to take a picture of it with my Christmas quilt or did I go through the motions and set up my tree again in a (poor) attempt at a photo shoot? I'll never tell!

I made this simple HST (Half Square Triangle) quilt using three charms packs of Jingle by Kate Spain for Moda.

I also used my Bloc-Loc ruler to make trimming all those HST's a breeze. Seriously, I love this ruler and I use it all the time! I never want to make HST's and other way.

Also, I have to say, look at those perfect points! I'm in love.

There's something at perfect points and matching seams that just makes me do a little happy dance inside. Okay, sometimes I do it on the outside too!

Here is a full picture of the quilt top. I believe it finishes out at 56" x 72". So it's a good size throw blanket.

I'll have to take a better picture when I quilt and finish it. For now though, I just have to make do with the crappy interior lighting. Did I mention it's snowing? Again! No outdoor shots for me in this cold winter weather. Nope. Just lots of hot chocolate. I'd say that's a fair trade-off.
